a sticky thread is a thread that stays at the top of the page, same with announcements, global announcements are in all of the forums and stay at the top too, just thought you might want to know.

these kind of threads are needed so that you don't have to search the page to find the topic

The debriefing can be made non-sticky once everyone has picked their skills and items. The other three should be sticky.

Yes, I think you could combine all of them. I doubt Simmo would want to combine ALL of them, but he could at least combine SOME of them. All four announcements list the crew. Some of them need to be updated. Maybe putting them all in one announcement would save time during updates.

I'll move the player status to where you cant see it. I'm still sorting it all out, that's why it's like it is. I have to unsticky the debriefing and lock it.

The promotions can go in the ship status screen. That would leave 2 announcements. Dont expect it to be fixed by the next time you come though. I have other stuff to do. The forum is not my first priority. My revision for my science exams is, until tuesday at the most.

Well, the announcements and stickys in this forum are Simmo's responcibility, but there are only 2 global announcements and they are important for first time viewers.

Nothing else can be done.

I'm not in charge of the global announcements. I cant do anything with them.

The two announcements can't be merged, they're completely different.

The current mission needs to be a sticky obviously, and the comments for it are completely different.

The first time visitors topic needs to be sticky so that new visitors read it.

Nobody else complains, so dont you complain. They can be managed, you just like to complain Wink
